Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcreview0711 good location for o2 arena
We had an enjoyable stay at HIE. The room was quiet, cool and comfortable. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Value for money is the only issue - expensive for what you get. The reason we stay at this hotel, is that it is the only one within reasonable walking distance to the o2 arena. Will definitely be staying again in the future.

Overall it was fab, walking distance from the O2 (had been to a concert), friendly staff, comfortable bed...only downside was the aircon being a little noisy. I'm a light sleeper but my sister wasnt bothered by it at all!! Will use again if I go to the O2 again in the future :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ErnestB Good Hotel
Hotel and staff are excellent, Be aware that it is a fair walk from the station, the hotel does not have a shuttle bus.
Also the rooms have no fridges or safes.Apparently it is normal in the UK for the "Express" not to have does facilities. I would stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shihtzu2 Great hotel, friendly staff
Our 4th visit to this hotel. Staff very professional and helpful. Quick/easy check-in/out. Great hotel for O2 venue. Only downside for me was the hard bed. Had to sleep on top of duvet to try and soften mattress. We did find the bathroom a little smelly, but resolved this by keeping plug in sink! Saying all this, we would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you

Fab front of house staff, clean room with several fresh towels, plentiful free breakfast and a perfect location for visiting the O2!
Just a 15 minute walk from the tube station and arena :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by litarita76 Great Hotel but Bed was bad
This hotel is great. Clean friendly and staff very helpful
but the matteress was way to soft so soft that it dipped so much in the middle i felt i was sleeping in a V shape which was very uncomfortable but that was the only down side and I am sure not all the beds were like that.
I was attending an event at the O2 arena which was about a 15 min walk away but there is also a bus that goes past the hotel which takes you to the tube station right by the arena so if you don't wanna walk you can still get there easily

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Debbie TW Good for O2 visit - Tiny Family room
Our family stayed here for a concert at the O2 in May 2014.the location of this hotel is excellent for the venue - we travelled in a Taxi to and from the underground station due to luggage which varied for £5 to £8 for the same journey ! Without baggage it is easy to walk along a safe pedestrian area which took about 15 mins.
My criticism is firstly in respect to the size of the family room which was "tiny" with the sofa bed down there was literally no room to stand between or at the end of the bed and sofa bed, and secondly the breakfast situation is atrocious ! There is one serving cabinet with one bowl of each item (sausage, egg and beans) it only hold enough to serve about 10 people then you have to wait for it to be filled up again. The queue for food was "massive" we waited for 40 minutes then gave up. There was only one poor waiter trying to clean tables so the dining area was dirty and cluttered. For the hotel to meet the anticipated level of service for a Holiday Inn they really need to sort the breakfast situation out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jan999 Perfect after visiting the O2
We took our 3 daughters to a concert at the O2, this hotel was within easy walking distance along a well-lit main road after the concert, took less than 10mins to walk there. The free breakfast was very decent and fresh, with a good selection of cereals, breads and hot food. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and polite. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Our only complaint would be that, as our youngest daughter shared a room with us, this made the room rather cramped as a double bed and a sofa bed pretty much filled most of the space available. But, for one night, this isn't much of a problem.

I stayed at the hotel for one night after a concert at the O2. I was very impressed by the hotel and would very happily stay there again.
The room was clan and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
It's only a 10 min walk from the O2 so very convenient.

Just a bit disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michelle.1234 Always great!!
I stay here at least once a year as it is the closest hotel to the 02 Arena. I stayed for 2 nights for the shows I was seeing.
The hotel is a short walk from the 02 & North Greenwich Station.
The staff are very helpful & friendly and willing to assist with my food intolerance.
The breakfast was excellent, a good selection with very attentive staff, you are welcomed at breakfast, food is refreshed and maintained efficiently.

This place was ok , the room was very cramped, we had twin beds. We stayed 4 nights which was a long time for such a small room not much room to hang clothes..there is a an excellent Chinese restaurant attached to building.
It was easy to get around by bus and tube. The area felt safe.
The staff were always there to help .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nix42 Reasonable value for the cost
The hotel is a bit of a walk from the N Greenwich tube but easy to access by bus from Greenwich.
It's good value for the cost, having a clean and tidy room, good shower and towels. The bed was a bit firm for me but was OK.
Breakfast, being free, was good with enough choice.
Staff were pleasant and welcoming
All in all, I'd stay here. Better than rivals at this price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CJDG Double room very good size
Largest double room ecountered so far in all the HI Express we have visited. Meant that we could actually use the sofa bed as a sofa for two to watch the decent size flat screen TV, so it felt more like a living area, rather than just a bedroom.
At HI Express we normally select various fruit salad items for breakfast. However the only wet fruit salad items at this one appeared to be tinned peaches. Adding a few other items such as tinned grapefruit and diced apple, melon etc would greatly improve the breakfast offering, which was fine in all other respects.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JAL12 Great Location for London and Marathon Start.
On arrival staff were great, gave goody bag to my husband as they were one of sponsors of the Marathon. Hotel is in great location for O2 and getting around London tube station close by. Room was clean with tea and coffee facilities.
Bathroom was getting tired, extractor fan did not work.
The mattress was tired and old was a double bed and springs had gone as my husband and i rolled into the middle and did not get a very good nights sleep. Walls are very thin you can hear next door talking, not sure if windows are double glazed but you could hear a lot of noise from cars, sirens etc.. expected this though as was a saturday night.
Sheets and pillow cases had old blood stains and other old stains on them this is quite off putting. There are plenty of detergents/bleaches you can use to remove blood/stains nowadays.
Breakfast was a reasonable choice, but very much appreciated the early start breakfast for the marathon runners, thanks Holiday inn, there was porridge too. Could do with a little better choice on the fresh side, fresh fruit salad etc for breakfast.
Couldn't fault the staff they were all very friendly and helpful. Would stay again as in good location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lynjaninja Comfortable & close to London Marathon start (runners)
Stayed here for the London Marathon. I pretty much used it as a bed for the night, and it was comfortable and clean. Blackheath start for Marathon runners is about a 10 minute walk away, so very handy for that. It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the tube station (or you can get a bus).
Nice staff, gave me a goody bag for being a marathon runner.
One thing I will say, is that if you book via a website such as booking.com etc, make sure you contact the hotel afterwards to tell them that you want a double etc as some of this information does not always get to them and me and my partner had to push our two single beds together :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shadowlaw9000 Great Experience
Had a Great Experience here! Has a nice view of the O2, it isn't far at all from the O2. The staff was friendly and helpful. The style of the hotel has a fancy class to it makes it ideal for a date or some time away. In a good location as it also isn't far from the Odeon, Sainsbury's and Matalan. The only problem I had was the quality of scrambled eggs for the breakfast was terrible I rate that a 2/10 and my room air con was leaking when it was at a low temp and switched off. Other than those it was a great experience. Definitely come again!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CraigandLucie Not what I expected - much better!
In North America we think of Holiday Inn Express as a basic, but good, hotel. Nothing special. This one is special. The room was excellent, the staff were amazingly friendly and the bar and restaurant area very pleasant and relaxing.
The hotel is a little hard to find the first time. We arrived at the North Greenwich tube stop, after a long flight, and decided to take a taxi rather than walk. It would have been quite a hike with luggage in tow. After getting familiar with the area, and the bus routes, we had no problems with the location.

Definitely the best budget hotel that we have stayed in. Great location for access to London Excel, we walked to the 02 and used the Emirates Airline.
The staff in this hotel are superb in every way, very professional, helpful, charming, service with a smile.
Comfortable rooms and beds, and a very welcome free breakfast.
Very impressed and will definitely use again when in the area. Thank you :)
